The google places categories are different to the Google + categories. When editing my business listing in Google Plus I cannot add the category 'Student Accommodation' Evidently in Google places this is a valid category but not in Google Plus.
The problem is further compounded when I see competitors who are categorised in the Student Accommodation category. No response from Google after reporting this so any help would be appreciated.
How do I get a new category added to the drop down category list when editing my business information. Some of our competitors have their Google Plus page categorised as Student Accommodation. However, when we try to find this option in the category drop down it is not there... any thoughts out there
